Chad Vader's review of Devin's 2008 releases

Smoke Sessions, Vol. 1 Released: April 1, 2008
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51-PasomXtL._SL500_AA240_.jpg)(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3164/3062254545_08c243e76b.jpg?v=0)

I bumped the hell out of this when it dropped,all original production on this mix-tape/street album so you might as well just call it a album  :P ;).
Shit is fire from start to end... Searching got be one of my favorite tracks in 2008.
Rating; 4/5


Landing Gear Released: October 7, 2008
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51fKo1W0wYL._SL500_AA240_.jpg)

A good album but a couple of below average tracks drags down the overall rating.
Rating; 3/5


Hi Life Released: October 7, 2008
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51KTd5O5NoL._SL500_AA240_.jpg)(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3074/3062256327_820cdfc060.jpg?v=0)
credits large image; (http://www.flickr.com/photos/32522860@N03/3062256327/sizes/l/)

Although this album clearly is leftover tracks Rap-A-Lot has thrown together,shit holds high quality all the way through.
No need to break down each track,all is above average.. no skipping.  ;)
Rating; 4/5

I haven't listened to Smoke Sessions yet but I agree with you. I like that "leftover"-album a lil bit more than Landing Gear. Although I would give them 3,5 and 4.  ;)

DMG ..stood out on the FaceMob albums..Devin was eh..on em...like out of his element...

Silence is more like a DMG solo album. (Devin is not on it)...
I agree that Devin is out of his element on some of the tracks (the hardcore ones),but he kills the slow ones.


thought the same..dmg goes hard...rap-a-lot crazy for not keepin him in the mix..him,big mike, willie d and 3-2 the only ones that was on the roster that useta eat everybodies favorite texas rapper for lunch everytime they got a verse from em...

I actually believe it's leftover tracks from DMG´s Black Roulette... and that Rap-A-Lot just slapped on the FaceMob name.  :P

then i interstate skate wit it in the deck...n what was 2-3 songs i liked...turn into enjoyin the whole album...


n hi-life i cant force myself to like that album...kuz it has a fucked up version of the song alchemist produced..n when it dropped i was in washington state at the time..at fye..

i picked up all his shit again..since i was gone be up there for awhile..i aint have no music on me...as im grabbin everything ..what i thought was a white dude said u forgot one n reached around me n put that hi-life shit on top of everything...

i was like ionwan that bullshit mayne...its garbage..then the dude was like shit u got everything else of the dude might as well pick this up too..i turned around n it was devin n rob quest laughin...n devin was like i wouldnt buy the shit neither n i wrote some of the songs..its all good my last check anyway..lol

til this day i cant see how people like hi-life over landin gear ..yo mind > the entire hi-life album

the replay factor is up there with the previous devin albums

Speaking Of Rob Quest do you know how his solo album is coming along?

Hi-Life had more Rap-A-Lot feel than Landing Gear..... so that's how   ;)


lolllll

i didnt see the rap-a-lot feel...will download it again later...jus to feel the force... :laugh:

it was suppose to been on last week...

i was at a couple of clubs and they were playin 2 of his songs who dat is and ooh yeah..broads was feelin that oooh yeah shit..i cant wait for blind rob..dude is a houstonian thats slept to the fullest...

"Marley And Me (Remix)"- http://www.zshare.net/audio/542439233f1aa134/ Here's another Smoke DZA/Devin collab "Highway"- http://www.zshare.net/audio/54244009a2f77d8d/  To Tha X-Treme is the best Devin album, IMO (I like them all, though). For '08, I gotta go with "Landing Gear". Not his best album, but it's better than the mixtape and the Rap-A-Lot leftovers. That Hi-Life album has some great songs, though ("My Occupation" w/ Bushwick is amazing). I liked the Smoke Sessions, but I was really disappointed with the sound quality when I bought this (some songs sound like demos). Overall, it was a solid year for Devin. Devin=the most consistent hip-hop artist. Still waiting for this banger to be released- http://www.zshare.net/audio/54244238d713dd9c/

Devin says - "It's a song about feelin' good on whatever you get high on."
